MILKED

White dented skin,
marked with careful precision
of
accidental wounds.
I look over my shoulder
instead of looking at your face
and it makes it all glamorous
and justifying,
as if I was posing
for that perfect picture.
Your salty fingers
end up invading my mouth,
stopping me
from screaming out the truth,
so what you get
are forced, silent lies.
Deaf
to the sound of ill-coloured heart
and blind
to the pale indifference we both share,
we let our exhaled breaths float
in the night around us.
I strike you as cold,
but it’s just that
I don’t like crying
over spilled milk.

    Really good! I like it. Ending is charming.
    P.S.
    I once told you that you should publish your poems!

      Funny, this bit was my favourite too, glad you picked that and it stood out for you too 🙂
      Publishing? In process 😉

      Thank you so much. Yes, I did think about that, actually. But somehow everybody on WP started doing that and I got hesitant.. Maybe I should reconsider, huh?
      Thanks so much for a beautiful comment! (Also, will reply about collaboration asap)

      Hey! Thanks! Flattered.. But I have stopped doing awards, way too many around to keep up with all of them. But honestly, thanks so much for thinking about me..
